Bourne Ultimatum filming in London

I've just discovered that they will be filming The Bourne Ultimatum in London the week after next in MY BUILDING! I can't believe it. :-) A lot of filming goes on in my area anyway, but never a production I've been terribly interested in. It will be just my bad luck that they won't be scenes with Matt. I find this quite funny actually because I have a friend in Berlin who lives in one of the streets they filmed Supremacy in.

Re: Bourne Ultimatum filming in London

Thanks Jan, you're obviously very well connected!

And Matt's apparently in London for the filming for three weeks, so you could be lucky. Is it the same building mentioned at IMDB in EC1?

Two different locations in this thread:

We look forward to all the details! Is there anything special about your building??

Re: Bourne Ultimatum filming in London

There are two locations I know about - this weekend they are filming near Holborn in EC1 - I found this on the IMDB. I actually went down there as I live so close and there is definitely filming going on - it was very quiet and they were working down a small side street. No sign of any actors - just lots of lights. In two weeks they will be filming in the building I live in (I did post a comment on IMDB) which is also in EC1 but nearer the City of London.

There is nothing particularly special about the building - it is quite ugly actually and strangely it is a grade 2 star listed building. 50s architecture. On the inside there is a kind of atrium, open to the elements - with railings all the way around the walkways and the flats opening on to this. It has a very eastern European communist feel about it and, as they have asked residents to take away their window boxes and plants from the area (some of the old dears who live here will surely object), I am wondering whether this is going to stand-in for something in Moscow. They will be filming in one of the doorways of the flats and around the stairwell. The film company wrote a really nice letter and will make donations to the tenants and owners associations.

I shall keep my camera handy and the kettle ready to boil to make Matt a cup of lovely English tea!

Thanks Jan - sounds like a lot of fun (and it's your contribution, in a way, to the film). I look forward to reading more!
